For example, if you invest $200,000 into a large-cap Growth Stock over the course of one year, you would expect to earn a higher return over the long-term compared to investing the same amount in a Growth Stock that earns no returns.

However, if you invest the same $200,000 in a Growth Stock that returns 2% each year and then see that share price of the Growth Stock skyrocket by over 40% while your holdings average 8%, you would have a much different outlook on the stock.

According to companies like SoFi, the amount you invest in the Stock will determine the amount of risk you are willing to take and the optimal returns you will earn.

However, with this investment strategy, you’re only trading a subset of the stock you would be investing in if it grew by 8% annually.
